Food Tips of the Week
Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Make reduced carb bread crumbs for breaded foods.
Although you can buy reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs, you may make them yourself by using reduced carb bread. Simply toast the low carb bread in the oven on a sheet of baking paper. Once it is well browned, grind it in your blender. Keep in an airtight jar or container.
Flavonoid rich foods
(inlcudes citrus fruits, asparagus, garden pea & basil)
The compounds known as flavonoids discovered in these natural foods are thought by nutritionalists to have properties in preventing cancer.

Many also have a low calorie count, so should be included in every diet.
